This is the recipe I created. It Is the perfect any time cocktail. This martini has the perfect balance of Sweet and sour. I designed this martini to make by the pitcher. I made this for a party. It was a huge hit. I had to make three pitchers of it. It all went. That says a lot. Considering, Only 5 people were drinking that day. The men like it too. This is not a girly martini. If you enjoy a martini that packs a little bit of a punch This is the one to try. I hope you all enjoy my perfect Martini. Cheers!
